Minimally invasive indirect veneers (MIIV) are ultrathin porcelain veneers that can be cemented onto labial surfaces after no or minimal tooth preparation. The benefits of no or minimal veneer preparation are conservation of tooth structure, absence of postoperative sensitivity, bonding to enamel, minimal flexural stresses, no need for provisionals and improved patient acceptance. However, no or minimal preparation veneers should be considered only after thorough functional and aesthetic evaluation. The article presented here illustrates a case of diastema closure using MIIV, to highlight the importance of treatment planning for achieving good results.
